About Studio Étincelle
Ashley is the photographer, creative director, and feminist behind Studio Étincelle. Having watched the sun rise in over twenty countries, she has developed a unique ability to forge intimate connections with people of all backgrounds; an ability to draw out and capture the true nature of those who cross her path. Her use of mixed media to create bold designs with photography and graphic elements defies common notions about marketing and branding, allowing her clients to stand out in oversaturated industries. Her endeavors are also motivated by a deep desire to support other creatives and globally conscious brands, inspired by the singular compassion and strength that blossoms when women come together to get shit done. Ashley is currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
About Studio Mondine
Studio Mondine is a floral design studio based in foggy San Francisco, California. We seek to balance the lushness of English garden arrangements with the precision of Japanese ikebana in our work. We look to nature and the changing of the seasons to inform our designs. It's with feverish enthusiasm that we seek out the rarest ingredients, working directly with the finest flower farmers in the nation or cultivating these special blooms ourselves in our small cutting garden.
About Abacus Row
Abacus Row is an independent brand of refined and understated jewelry. Our line reflects an unexpectedly subtle approach to beadwork. Thoughtfully detailed and meticulously crafted, each piece is designed for the sophisticated individual with a discerning eye and effortless sense of style. Our jewelry is crafted in-house, at our production studio and showroom located in Nob Hill in San Francisco, CA.
We are based out of New York City and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Kaarem is focused on details, construction and craft. We create artisanal designs and products inspired by craft, community and our roots. Each piece is designed and crafted in our production studio where we specialize in finishing each garment by hand using the blind stitch method. We have a small in-house team of designers, patternmakers, and craftspersons focused on the details and dedicated to quality.
